Samuel Randall Englishman, eager for glory, one who loved loyalty, of upright behaviour, a brave naval commander. While travelling towards the lands of Asia, being greatly experienced in the perils of the sea, he ended his days swallowed by the waves, and his bones, saved from the voracity of the sea, lie in this grave. He incurred the greatest of evils on 29th January 1674 AD from the incarnation of Our Saviour at the exact age of 44.]
